We're The Saints.

Inspiring excellence through teamwork, discipline, and creativity in central Ohio, through the performing arts.
Mission Statement
A Columbus based performing arts nonprofit organization with over ten years of youth outreach, community engagement, and entertainment experience.


Reaching our community

Being a member of a performing ensemble teaches discipline, teamwork, conflict resolution, selflessness, leadership, and personal responsibility.  Because of budget cuts, many young people are missing out on the arts and it is our desire to provide these opportunities in central Ohio.  We've been helping central Ohio youth learn about music for over 11 years.

  • “I founded the Saints Performing Arts because I wanted the youth in the community to be able to experience the joy of performing as many of their schools did not have music programs.”

  • In my experience as a member of a local Big 10 Marching Band, I’ve performed for my community on so many levels. As a member of the Saints, I get to take my passion for performing to a new audience and enjoy the camaraderie, and competitive spirit of drum and bugle corps.
